Rossall Welcomes New LAMDA Teacher

Mr Campbell is an honours graduate in Acting. He has extensive training in many disciplines, such as Forum and Physical Theatre, Theatrical Biomechanics, Circus Skills and Acting for Camera to name but a few. He has experience of working professionally in theatre, film and TV and was recently filming an ITV project with various cast members from Emmerdale and Coronation Street.

Having trained in disciplines including theatre, TV, film and media, Mr Campbell will bring a diverse range of skills and experience to pass on to Rossall students. Outside of his professional life, he has volunteered in community youth theatre with the Lytham Academy of Theatre Arts for over 20 years, with whom he has been involved in the staging of many major full scale musical productions such as Les Miserables, Miss Saigon and Phantom of the Opera to name but a few.

Mr Campbell is passionate about Theatre in Education, and recently played the role of Lennie in John Steinbeck’s ‘Of Mice & Men’, touring theatres and schools, enabling students to experience the play in full production and also to participate in workshops and character interviews.

On leaving university, he launched a new theatre school in Lytham St Annes, providing training and professional representation for over sixty students. Chris is the Director of Acting at the school and coordinates all of the LAMDA training, as he will be doing at Rossall School for Years 9-13.

The LAMDA examination process provides young people with the opportunity to develop their speech and drama skills, which can prepare them for both further education and the world of work. Examinations can be taken in the Speaking of Verse and Prose, Acting, Devising Drama and Public Speaking, providing students with essential life skills and helping to develop their confidence.
